Handmade 3 Year Old Birthday

Hello Friends,

One really cool thing about handmade cards is that you can personalize them.  For my grandson's 3rd Birthday Card, I personalized his card with both his name and his age.  Now that's pretty cool!

The 3 birthday Balloons were stamped with the Balloon Adventure stamp set and punched out with the Balloon Bouquet punch.  The number 3 was cut with the Large Numbers Dies.  And I stamped his name with the Labeler Alphabet Stamp set.

The Balloon Adventures seemed like a perfect choice for a little fellow who is always up for an adventure.  Happy Birthday Colten!

Balloon Pop Up Birthday Card

Inside there's one more surprise for our adventurous little fellow.  It's a Pop-Up Card made with the Balloon Pop-Up Dies and the Balloon Adventures stamp set.


 Brandy from Stampin' Up! goes into great detail about how to use the Balloon Pop-Up Dies.  

The Balloon Pop-Up Dies are half price until May 31, 2017 or While Supplies Last.  Then they are gone, gone, gone.

Happy Birthday Gorgeous Sneak Peek

Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

There's so much to love about today's birthday card.  It's clean, it's fresh and it's whimsical.   And it's a Sneak Peek of the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle from the 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Catalog.  

The rolling script of the Happy Birthday thinlit is a perfect match for the 32 piece Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp set.  The playful, bright flowers look like they are doing a little dance.  The party balloon blowing in the breeze is also a stamp from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp set and it coordinates with the ever popular Balloon Bouquet Punch.

Super Simple Happy Birthday Card to Make

Super Simple Card to Make

Today's Card was inspired by the inside of this card, which I will show you next.  But first, let's talk about the card front.  It's a super simple card to make.  The Card Base (5-1/2" x 8-1/2") is Powder Pink cover with 4" x 5-1/4" piece of the Fresh Floral Designer Series Paper Stack.  This paper is going to be popular.  It is really quite beautiful and it includes the 5 lovely 2017-2019 In Colors.  The flowing Happy Birthday die cut is the Happy Birthday Thinlits die from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle.

Happy Birthday Gorgeous

And here's the whimsical inside that inspired today's Birthday Card.  Notice how well 3 of our 2017-2019 In Colors play together.  Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist and Powder Pink make great playmates.

The Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle will be available June 1, 2017 when the 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Catalog goes live.  All of my customers should have a copy of this year's beautiful catalog already.  If you've purchased from me in the past year and have not received your catalog.  Please let me know right away.  If you'd like to become a Stamping Country customer and receive your own 2017-2018 Stampin' Up!
